1. Securing high-paying jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math so that our graduates can build successful families in El Paso - Through the Business & Finance Forum, we have established (one of 8), I will gain insights to opportunities we can offer. I will spend 100 days in my first year educating leaders in Washington D.C. about the strategic assets El Paso offers and visit companies throughout the nation to to ensure we secure important company facilities in El Paso

2. Revamping the Veterans Administration to become an Organization of Excellence so that our Veterans receive the finest care offered - Through the Veterans & Military Forum, we will reach out to Veterans, of all ages, to work together for better healthcare (mentally, emotionally, and physically).

3. Ensuring that our Dept. pf Homeland Security Officers are able to do their jobs to keep our borders secure and to root out drug and human smuggling into El Paso and our Nation – Through our law Enforcement Forum we will take LE leaders to Washington D.C. to educate all branches of government on the best ways to secure our borders.
See Point #1 above. Additionally I would seek to serve on the Commerce and Industry committees to secure advanced technology jobs for El Pasoans and to build an infrastructure of jobs here which would lead us away from low paying manufacturing jobs to high-paying science, technology, engineering and math jobs to serve the Military and Law Enforcement agencies.
I believe in a Balanced Budget. First, we must stop the Continuing Resolutions which have served as a "pork belly" tactic to continue spending beyond our means. Second, I would work with both Republicans and Democrats to secure a Balanced Budget amendment to the Constitution. Third, I would work to reduce the sizee of our Federal Government and promote limited government.
I think it is better but time is needed to determine just how much. In addition to continuing to reduce the tax burden on Americans, I would reduce the outreach of the IRS which has become a deterrent to helping small businesses to grow in America.
Yes, Obamacare is a disaster! Lower quality healthcare, less insurers which have driven up costs, and less providers who can not survive. I am against socialized medicine and the Federal Government having a major role in our healthcare system. Incentives are needed at the State levels to help providers, insurance companies, and patients to seek cost-effective solutions.
Immigration - work to secure a fast-track pathway to Citizenship for members of DACA; limit change migration; promote a merit-based immigration system; and secure our borders.
